9780140082166: Winners and Losers: Battles, Retreats, Gains, Losses and Ruins from the VietnamWar

This book is an American National Book Award winner. After covering the Vietnam war for the "New York Times", Gloria Emerson travelled across America for four years, interviewing people who fought in the war or who fought against it, those who paid little attention and others whose lives were changed by it. Her reporting on a small town in Kentucky which suffered high losses, is considered a remarkable inquiry into the meaning of war and its effects on America. Emerson also writes about the Vietnamese people with the insight that characterized her reporting during the war.
